How do I stop crows from coming to the bird feeding station? Sometimes a lot of them appear in people's backyard then they move to someone else's backyard. When this happens a few of them will go to bird feeding station. There are 3 places I gave birds to eat from- the bird feeder with bird seeds. On the bottom a bowl of bird seeds and on the ground a tray with 2 bowls of bird seeds. When it rains I leave the bird feeder protected by a dome. Then under porch I leave 2 wooden platform bird feeders. This is what I did the last time it rained but a small bird was dead. I was mad because I gave them a lot of places to eat from. I am not sure what kind of bird killed it but if it's not the crow then it might be a dove. The doves are usually peaceful but once in a while they might fight. The problem is the small birds sometimes eat from where they are which is usually the big tray with 2 bowls even though they can go to bird feeder or just wait until no other birds are there. The crows are the most violent and sometimes hundreds appear in people's backyard. Only like 10 will go to bird feeding station at once. When this happens other birds leave. Then if I am home I go outside so they can leave. I don't want these black birds here at all because they are too big and cab hurt other birds.
